NeuroRehabilitation, an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, publishes manuscripts focused on scientifically based, practical information relevant to all aspects of neurologic rehabilitation. We publish unsolicited papers detailing original work/research that covers the full life span and range of neurological disabilities including stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, neuromuscular disease and other neurological disorders.
We also publish thematically organized issues that focus on specific clinical disorders, types of therapy and age groups. Proposals for thematic issues and suggestions for issue editors are welcomed.

Abstract: Objectives: To investigate if errorless learning applied by carer(s) in an everyday setting can reduce the frequency of everyday memory problems following severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). Research design: Multiple baseline single case experimental design. Methods and procedures: A patient with severe memory impairment, six years post TBI was recruited via an outpatient neurorehabilitation clinic. ABA analysis was conducted using daily frequency counts of everyday memory problems as an index of change. Experimental intervention: Errorless learning delivered by the patient’s carer, aimed at reducing the occurrence of identified everyday memory problems. The carer was …guided in treatment implementation by an Occupational Therapist. Main outcomes and results: Incidence of frequently occurring memory lapses was significantly reduced (p < 0.001) and this was maintained at 3 months post intervention. Conclusion: This study highlights the potential clinical value of errorless learning with self-generated cues applied by carers within an everyday setting. Show more

Abstract: We report on a multiple sclerosis patient who received functional electrical stimulation to reduce spastic muscle tone of the lower limbs. Stimulation by means of surface electrodes applied to the thigh muscles induced cycling leg movements. Spastic muscle tone was measured clinically using the modified Ashworth scale and semiautomatically by pendulum testing of spasticity. This was done before and directly after stimulation. The patient was able to endure the stimulation for ca. 30 minutes; there was a significant reduction of spasticity after each stimulation session. We conclude, that this type of stimulation could be another potential treatment modality for multiple …sclerosis patients, especially those with a high score in the expanded disability Status scale.
